'I like Hallowe'en. Bonfires, parades, and people wearing masks to trick wondering ghosts. Not that I believe in ghosts! Queen Victoria loves Hallowe'en too - she visits Balmoral in Scotland every year to celebrate. How grand their royal celebrations must be? I can only imagine. I've been told it's up to me to give out 'soul cakes' to the poor and sick this year. Effie says that cakes are meant to be an offering to the lost souls so they don't come and get us!
Silly stories that's all they are, well, I hope so....'
